Home Made Bath Fizzie Recipe



Home made bath salt steamer simple cheap and easy
Here is the recipe (recipes)

Rubber ice cube tray works best
Mine I bought in
the dollar rack at Target
Old cookie sheet
one box (1 LB baking soda = sodium bicarbonate
1 tablespoon corn starch
fresh herbs 20 leaves
1/2 cup water

Choice of oils see #1 #2 or #3

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl
break up any lumps with your fingers

In a small pot boil some fresh mint or rosemary (whatever
herb you have growing and enjoy with about 1/2 cup water
Allow the water to cool and toss the plant material
Rosemary awakens vitality, mint makes happy
keep the green water aside for the end


For the smell you have a couple choices:
#1 the easy cold and cough remedy
Vick's Vapor Rub a tablespoon the
eucalyptus is great for cold or sinus
congestion
Camphor is a cough suppressant and analgesic
menthol is also a cough suppressant and analgesic
Vick's Vapor Rub has petroleum that's a little messy
Blend slowly into the baking soda mix

OR #2 you can make your own cough and cold mix:
1/8 cup coconut oil
10 drops of Eucalyptus Oil
10 drops of Peppermint oil
5 drops of Rosemary oil
Blend slowly into the baking soda mix

Or #3 for a relaxing soothing shower:
1/8 cup coconut oil
10 drops lavender oil or
15 drops of Kneipp lavender bath oil
2 drops of rose oil

I prefer to use organic -
Mountain Rose also has great products

You are mixing one of the three batches
of oils into the dry mix with your fingers

Add drops of the mint water (you may
only need 2 tablespoons it depends on
how humid it is.

The paste should be sticky
It is thick like pastry dough

Press tightly into the ice cube trays
(you can also use tiny cupcake tins
or roll in a ball)

the rubber ice cube trays work well
because you can press out the shapes

If any are messy just push them back
into the ice cube trays and do them over

Place shapes on old cookie tray

Put in oven set to 200 degrees for
five minutes
Turn off heat, let them cool and
dry in the oven

Place in recycled jars (clean jelly
jar, clean olive jar)

Keep lid off to dry thoroughly
for a day. Then close the lid

Paint the lids with nail polish to
label or add a paper note

The shower steamers can be
placed anywhere in the shower.
They melt and the aromatherapy
opens your sinus and makes you
oh so happy.

I decorate mine with a few
dried flowers on the ribbon
for gifts

Baking soda is a natural cleanser for the shower floor.
You may find the oil a bit slippery, you can wipe the floor dry with an
microfiber towel. The multi surface towels plus the steamers will keep the
shower floor clean.
